U. Flamingo Santos vs Costa do Sol

Sam Timbe has emphasized that his team’s progression to the next round of the Orange Confederations Cup will depend on how well they keep possession of the ball in this evening’s return leg tie against El-Amal.

Atraco won the first leg 2-0 courtesy of goals from captain Jean Lomami and winger Jabir Mutarambirwa, and the taxi-men club will be hoping to recuperate last year’s heroic Cecafa triumph in Sudan by winning today’s encounter.

But Timbe is not taking anything for granted, after telling Sunday Sport from Sudan yesterday by phone that his team will be cautions of the hosts and seek to have more of ball possession.

“We need to have better ball possession and at least score a goal to deny them any chance of coming back in to the team. I will stick to the same team that played in the first leg.” the 50-year-old tactician said.

Atraco need a draw of any kind to proceed to next round where they will play either Costa do Sol (Mozambique) or Uniao Flamingo Santos of Botswana.
